Jar of Love Shaker Card

Since it is summer in Australia at the moment, I though it would be great to share a card that represents the ocean and the beach. I used some clear glass beads and fussy cut some starfish to shake around in the card. I am very happy with the end result and hope my viewers like it too.

Owl Builder Christmas Card

I have always wanted to make a cute little card with Christmas owls sitting on a branch.

The branch and holly leaves were made using some dies from memory box, and the rest of the card was made using Stampin Up products as shown in the below supply list.

You will notice that I used many different SU punches to make up the owls instead of just using the original owl builder punch. The reason for this, is I just wanted my owls to look a little different from the original owl.

I used the owl builder punch for the owl background shape, the heart punch for the eye background, the 3/4" circle punch for the belly, the raindrop from the tree builder punch for the beak, and the smallest shape from the blossom petals builder punch to make the owl wings.

Foxy Friends Christmas Card

Today I am sharing a Christmas card which uses the "Foxy Friends" stamp set and the coordinating "Foxy Builder" punch to make Rudolf the red nosed reindeer. My sentiment is from the "Good Greetings" stamp set.

Botanical Blooms Card

There are many flower stamps sets to choose from in the annual catalogue, and the "Botanical Blooms" stamp set is by far my favourite. I will be sharing a few different cards that I have made using this stamp set over the coming months, which range from a simple card through to cards that are a little more difficult to make.

I wanted to give the card a slight grungy look, so I used the "French Foliage" stamp set to achieve the result I was after. I think both these stamps sets work really well together and I love the colour combination I used.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Engagement Card

I have made a few cards using the "detailed floral thinlits dies", which I will share over the coming months. I think these dies are perfect for making engagement and wedding cards as the finish is elegant.

In my supply list, I tried to include both the stamp sets that I used, but they were not available for me to select, so I have listed the digital version of the stamp sets instead, just to show which stamps were used.

Christmas Pines Card

I'm in love with the "Christmas Pines" stamp set and the coordinating thinlits dies. I love how natural this set is, and it really represents an Aussie Christmas. The sentiment I chose is from an old stamp set called "Christmas Punch" which retired quite a few years ago.

Christmas Jar of Love Card

The "Jar of Love" stamp set and coordinating thinlit dies are by far my favourite bundle in the annual catalogue. These jars are so versatile and they really do make the perfect shaker card. I have made many jar cards, and will share them over the coming weeks.

Today's card is a simple snowflake shaker card which is filled with 5 small snowflakes with rhinestones in the center and some "Diamond Dust" by Floracraft.

Botanical Builder Birthday Card

The "Botanical Blooms" stamp set along with the coordinating "Botanical Builder" framelits are definitely my favourite flower set in the current catalogue. I have made many cards using this set and will share them with you over the coming months, the one below was the easiest and quickest one to do.
